Simply Three Wins Best Cover of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Sing’
The musical trifecta — Glen McDaniel, Zack Clark, and Nicholas Villalobos — won the four-round contest by putting an unconventional twist to the pop song. Rather than singing the lyrics, the trio produced a black-and-white fractal music video of themselves covering the single with the arrangement of a cello, bass, and beatboxing.
Simply Three, who collaborated with Kellindo and Glen McDaniel from Janelle Monae‘s band for a mashup of “Cold War” and “Tightrope,” has also incorporated their classic style on other pop-friendly tracks including Pharrell‘s “Happy,” Imagine Dragons‘ “Demons,” and Adele‘s “Rolling in the Deep.”
Their debut EP Two Worlds Collide is available for download on iTunes now.
